Description

These Civil War veteran’s escutcheons are fairly common as they go, but this is rather different for the variety of insignia, badges, and POW association displayed upon it.

This was made for Philander R. Kimble, of the 6th Pennsylvania Reserves.  There is a whole host of information painted on in gold lettering, but the one thing that most want to know about is Gettysburg, and yes, that one is here, along with many many other engagements.  The escutcheon makes mention that the 6th PA Reserves were the 35th Penn. Volunteer infantry.

Kimble was taken prisoner in May of 1864 at Bethesda Church, Va. There is a lot here to describe, so I am hoping the photos are good enough to appreciate this historic piece.

The print has a good deal of hand painted work. It measures 15 x 23 approximately and overall framed, 22 x 30 inches. Condition is very good with some acid staining from wood backing coming through.

USPS cost to be determined
